Hey! thanks for your comment and I was looking for this shot after the voting is over.
You need a tighter crop and also as I said in my last pic, if you could make align the clip perpendicular to the lines, it gives more shapes.

Nicely composed and interesting lines. 6

Unfortunately, this one may suffer a bit from comparisons to the other similar shot entered in the challenge. I think the other will do better with the voters, both because the focus was sharper on the outer lines and its colors are richer than what you have here.

Were you and another paper clip shooter sharing props? :) I have to say I liked the other one better because it was closer.

I liked the other one alot better.. Nice try though. This one is a bit grainy. Try a lower ISO.

Nice remake of a classic photo, it's a shame you've got competition in the same challenge...

Good to see a few surface tension shots in the challenge. you might wanna clean it up a little. I guess you were using high iso to get this shot
